Publisher's Summary

The dead walk the land. The dungeon rises. War will move the Heavens and the Earth. 

Powerful necromancers are on the move, and the dungeon has become a battleground. Without his faithful Wisp, Cal's mind slips - he begins creating traps and monsters that go against his already loose morals. 

A direct threat from an unexpected force causes Cal's mind to stabilize, but he doesn't know for how long. Using every resource at his disposal, he works to keep his mind clear while he funds a search for his lost companion. When others fail him again and again, Cal takes matters into his own hands. 

Deadly situations remind Dale that no matter how well he does in his secluded community, he is still considered a weakling in the greater world. Deciding that his physical and mental training are not enough, Dale resolves to gain strength by any means necessary. 

Both are aware that they need to keep moving. If they stop, their choices could kill them.

Dwarf erections that are just to damn funny.

Loved it. Kept picking it up outside my normal listening windows while driving. Goblin bob is def the best Bob in any universe and the voice work is stunningly fun to listen to. Also... Dwarf boners. Twice. I laughed both times. (if you don't read that and see that I find this book good enough to suggest it on that joke alone then... Read it anyways.)

Fantastic

Just a fantastic experience from dungeon born to calamity. I have listened to and read at least 80 fantasy books. None are as memorable and surprising as this series. Astounding work from both writer and narrator.

Such a good series!

I have had this series for about 2 months now. I've listened to it start to finish 3 times. It is one of my favorite series and I never get tired of it. I am an avid Dungeons and Dragons player/DM and this is right up my alley.

The author did an amazing job and I love all the characters (Hans is my favorite though). I love the puns and the suspense and the growth of the characters. I hope he continues this series and can't wait to listen to more of it.

Vikas Adam has become one of my favorite Narrators as well. His performance with this series is incredible. I enjoy the voices and the emotion he has. Sometimes, it can give you chills.

I'm in love with this series and I don't think I'll ever get tired of listening to it. Thank you Dakota and Vikas for a wonderful story!!

Amazing!

I love what the story is coming to, but it hasn't reached its peak yet! There are still two more continuations. The next book Dungeon Desolation is already out but is not on audible as of the time of this review (1/8/19). I am eagerly awaiting the next books as I love the characters and the narrator portraying them. The conclusions that this book comes to alone is worth all three books combined.

I would greatly appreciate the next book to appear on audible soon as I don't have much to listen to at the moment. Either that or the next book in the Completionist series would be most appreciated. If you haven't read it I recommend it. It is also by the same author and narrator. The first book is Ritualist and the second is Regicide. They are on par with this series.

If you have also read those, I would recommend series such as the The Land, The Rogue Dungeon, or The Wraith's Haunt series which are all similar LitRPG's to this series

Brilliant plot and characters

I've read the other two books in the series and loved those as well. The character development is realistic, but still dynamic. Some authors miss the idea that characters need regression as well as progression in character development, but Dakota Krout delivers believable personality growth for each of his characters. I especially liked Tom's development, and could see a deeper side of him in this book. The main characters are likeable, but it's the relationships of the supporting characters and their distinct nuance behaviors, delivered in both the narration and the writing, that gives a feeling of full emersion to the reader. Thanks for another great one, Dakota.

Was pretty great but ...

Loved the book up until the ending ..twist? It just felt so weirdly out of place and a bit forced. I would have enjoyed it a lot more if it ended differently. Honestly it hardly makes much sense to me. The only thing that went through my mind afterwards was ..why?

I enjoyed the experience overall however.

Great performance though. Narrator is amazing.

A perfect end to the series

I loved this series of books. The characters are funny and thrilling. The performance makes it easy to understand who is talking with distinct voice changes for the many characters.

A suitable twist to a rollercoaster emotional ride in the only dungeon delve books I’m aware of told from the point of the dungeon itself.

Amazing and a must for fantasy / d&d fans

Wonderful series

Where does Dungeon Calamity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I loved these books and put them up there with bobiverse books, one of my all time favorite book series .

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the characters they are funny, relatable and possibly sociopathic mixed with just a sprinkle a slap stick homour!

What does Vikas Adam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Such a lively narration clear definition between characters, sounded like he enjoyed the book also.

Any additional comments?

Do give this current trilogy a try. I can not wait for book four

Brilliant twist that leaves you begging for more.

The divine dungeon series for me was a slow starting epic that has rewarded my perseverance. Dungeon Calamity specifically seems to be the result of what appears to be some damn well thought out planning by Dakota. Building a world that you can lose yourself in. I'm so excited for the story to continue !

Good progress in story, technical issue detracted

Some significant movement in the overall story, but a lot of leveling up progress also described that is interesting but may be unnecessarily detailed. Also, the fact that these leveling up factors are introduced as the characters encounter them make them appear too convenient. More conscious selection of their cultivation paths could have alleviated a bit of this convenient "luck"but I don't think it would help in the minutiae of describing leveling up.

A technical issue existed with the copy I listened to. The audio book was split in two halves and the second half played first, taking me mid-story and making me disinterested for a week of sporadic listening before my interest was regained in the last few hours of the book. Seeing there was still another half to go, I learned it was the first half. After reading that part, it would certainly have given me better engagement in the beginning.
